- Help our staff to build consensus and maintain unity within the church.
- Encourage and assist staff members in service to the congregation, allowing them to better focus on their particular area of ministry.
- Pray diligently for the spiritual, physical, emotional, and fiscal health of the church.
- Assist the pastor and Administrative Council in communicating and promoting programs and visions to the congregation.
Specific deacon-led ministries areas include…

• Home Repair - The primary purpose of this team is to make minor home repairs for those church members who are not reasonably able to do themselves.
• Hospital Visitation - The primary purpose of this team is supplement the staff’s visits to those members and loved ones who are hospitalized, providing comfort, encouragement, and prayer for the sick and their families.
